Burke Mountain Resort

Seasons and gear change, not our beliefs. Skis and boards give way to bikes and kayaks. Base layers to sunscreen. Apres with a warm fire and a cold VT beer to…well, that’s the same, it’s just outside.

But, our mountain resisted a glacier, so what we stand for doesn’t change with weather. We don’t make the ride easier, we make the rider stronger. In woods, in pastures, on water or in it – we get the most out of our surroundings and take as little as possible from them. Everyone’s a local, no matter where they call home. It’s the Vermont that used to be. The one you’ve been missing.

It still lives, and always will, in The Last Little Corner of Vermont.

Burke Mountain

Easy to access trail that begins at the lowest level parking lot of the main Burke Base Area. About a mile in the climb begins and the trails splits with the option to take the Red Trail or the West Peak Trail that converge near the top before reaching the summit’s fire tower. Enjoy distant views of the Willoughby Gap and Sutton Ridge and a close up shot of the adjacent wind turbine. Alternate routes include the Toll Road (free to hikers), a 3-mile paved road that goes all the way up.

There are close to a hundred miles of cross-country mountain biking trails all around Burke Mountain. If you’ve heard of Kingdom Trails, then you know they are some of the best anywhere in the country. But don’t just take our word for it: according to MTBparks.com, the downhill mountain biking located right in the Burke Mountain Bike Park isn’t too shabby either. Voted one of the top five best regional bike parks by riders throughout the Northeast, the gravity fed downhill park and trail system offers riding for all ability levels from beginner to expert. A variety of terrain can be found at Burke Mountain including 3 downhill trails from the summit. Lower on the mountain, you’ll find fun, flowing single track and machine-excavated flow and jump trails.
